All your production needs in one convenient unit.

The Akai MPC2000XL-MCD Production Station continues the MPC Series tradition of providing precision sequencing and drum programming and powerful sampling facilities in one convenient, portable desktop unit. This latest generation of MPC adds happening features like a Next Sequence key, 4 bank keys to effectively provide 64 pads, track mute key, hinged LCD, multiprogram playback, device naming, MIDI soft thru, multitrack recording, time stretch, resampling, and simultaneous playback of a second sequence plus folder file management. This powerful unit helps your creative flow, rather than throwing obstacles in your way like so many production stations do. Whether you're a techno geek, creating sequences with multiple MIDI modules, or gigging; whether you're programming complex drum parts or triggering loops, you'll appreciate the convenience and ease of the MPC2000XL-MCD's friendly and intuitive user interface that simplifies the expression of your creativity. The compact and rugged build also means it's equally at home onstage as it is in the studio. The innovative memory card interface supports various types of removable flash memory such as Compact Flash, Smart Media, Memory Stick, and Secure Digital. Saving and transferring files has never been cheaper or more convenient.
